Club Status
We are operating and open to new members.

We are a new energy club in the Dyfi Valley. We will take advantage of the hydro power generated in the local area to save money from our electricity bills and support local green electricity generation. Our first generator is Esgairweddan, a 60kW hydro scheme on a farm in Pennal. Please note that prices quoted below exclude VAT.
